Tuition fees

Universities in Finland introduced tuition fees in 2017 to a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes taught in a language other than Finnish or Swedish. The intention of the tuition fees is to emphasise high quality education.

Tuition fees cover education and support for education in the University of Oulu. Tuition fees do not cover travel, housing or living expenses, nor do they cover student union fees. Students’ tuition fees will remain unchanged for the duration of the degree programme.
